luck finally changed when he was offered a job as a newspaper reporter on the virginia city territorial enterprise. virginia city was the next town up from carson city. eureka, he said, his luck had changed at last. the enterprise was the liveliest newspaper between st. louis and san francisco. twain fit right in, besides assorted miners, and other desert rats, the town was home to a full contingent of prostitutes, called herdy gerdy girls. and gun slingers, by the names of six finger pete. twain spent the next two years reporting and sometimes inventing the news. he thoroughly enjoyed himself, usually at other people's expense, but his habit of creative reporting finally got him into trouble one day when arrival newspaper editor challenged him to a due em. twain preferred to avoid con flick, he didn't have time to fit a duel just then and besides, he had been drunk when he wrote the offending story. instead of fighting the duel, he left virginia city and came to san francisco, where much against his desires, he finally took a job on another newspaper, the morning call. san francisco ha

how that will get financed for the future. when we extended the corridor to lynchburg, virginia, we were panel to use equipment that was available, that extended from the northeast corridor to provide that service. but there are areas, as you say, for example, one of the corridors that i think has great promise, is the milwaukee to madison corridor, for example, for the future. that will require the rebuilding of the tracks and it will require additional equipment, and you have a state that's made a strong commitment in regard to that, being wisconsin, and both in terms of equipment that they would buy and pay for, in some cases, on their own, and also applying for and rebuilding the line between milwaukee and madison or at least part of that line, that they own. and i think that's where the key for pria came, that the states would take a leadership role in those corridors for the future, not only with adding packs and facilities, but also with the equipment. we're there to help them. but they're going of to -- take a role in that process -- going to have to take a role in that proc

can find it in the history of views about woman-hating. at the time of loving vs. virginia in 1967, amazingly late, 16 states both prohibited and punished marriages across racial lines. furthermore, although states were always required to honor divorces performed in other states that had more lenient divorce residence requirements than their own, that was not the case. with interracial marriage. though, it's the only parallel to the defense of marriage act. state that has laws like that refused to recognize marriages between blacks and whites legally contracted elsewhere. and they even criminalized those marriages. the supreme court case that brought about the overturning of the case loving vs. virginia was such a case. middler jeter african-american and richard loving, white, got married in washington, d.c., in 1958. but their marriage -- notice in race, too, d.c. was in the vanguard so this is interesting. their marriage, however, was not recognized as legal in their home state of virginia. when they returned there they were arrested in the middle of the night in their own bedroo

just over the river, in to west virginia tonight across eastern kentucky and over the river and i'm going to be reading from a piece about judy bonds, and it is titled "the endangered hill billy." there's a heaviness that hangs over the town of west virginia. like the fog from the nearby big coal river, it seeps through the streets, past the empty store front, on up the mountainside to the rows of house that is overlook the town. it has become the invisible resident, a testament to the flight that has taken place over the years, even as the profits of the mining industry have soared. many of the buildings on the main street are vacant, pocked by broken windows, boarded up with plywood. only a few businesses barely hold on, an auto shop, a law office, a motel. the sign for a local diner boa boasts hot fried baloney sandwiches. inside, a handful of people gather at the counter for their midday dinner. one can hear the exhaustion. people are tired, although the town is located within boone county, the leading coal producing city in the state, nearly 30% of residents live below the po

on mining safety since the big branch west virginia coal mine explosion which killed 29 workers early this month. we will hear about proposed changes to the regulations aimed at preventing companies from deily and safety improvements. tom harkin of iowa chairs the labor intentions committee. this is just over three hours. [inaudible conversations] >> the senate committee on health education and labor will please come to order. the topic of today's hearing couldn't be more timely or more important in the wake of the west virginia coal mine disaster the refinery explosion and course washington where seven workers people of the connecticut gas power plant and just last week a blast from the louisiana oil rig often built with mexico most likely killed 11 workers. it is time to focus renewed attention on the safety of our fellow workers. the string of recent deaths and injuries is a grim reminder that to many employers cut corners on safety to many workers paid the price with their lives. as the son of a coal miner i feel these losses deeply in a very personal level. my thoughts and prayer
accepted this invitation and am very grateful to virginia but what they don't know is i am mostly accepted the invitation because it gives me an opportunity too actually interact with cornel west who is so big and busy that he is not sufficiently available so here we are thrown together into this conversation but in all seriousness i think one of the things that is wonderful about the gathering is it allows us to consider people who are behind bars and to acknowledge them not only as a part of our humanity but also their membership of our social body. the book that is celebrated today "jailhouse lawyers" is a vote of addition to a growing literature that makes clear there is firebrand life behind bars. not solely in violence exploitive programs you may have seen on television but the act that we have deliberately as a society made of intellectually able individuals who toil and trouble under difficult circumstances to prove they are human. and before we go on to the larger subject i realize mumia abu-jamal was the subject of the conversation but as a social anthropologist at princeton let
number of democrats and independent especially virginia beach virginia and connecticut. >> is there anything else you consulted? >> that is a great question. i think democracy and america, was one of the great books of all time and some of the collor part to as part of the movement. that was probably the other book that was most influential 2/7 thank you for your time. >> guest: it is a great political service and one of the great innovations of broadcast history. >> host: we will now speak with jonathan. how was it going with the new book? what is about? >> philosophical principles of modern conservatism in modern america. >> guest: what does that mean to you? >> and the book i discuss how there are some many different types of abuse neo conservative, of fiscal conservatism all of these differing groups but four things that unite them all except -- respect for a constitution, at limit government and for some responsibility. >> host: how will you? and tell us how you got started? >> i got involved in politics at nine years old because of the judicial filibuster on the n
't going to virginia. so he has gone and convinced the british that there is going to be an attack on staten island. and then, the eventual result is the fact that his army and the french army are able to move across new jersey without being attacked and as i am sure most of you are aware, make it down to virginia and cornwallis surrenders at yorktown. that gives you pretty much of a run through on the spycraft that was used during the american revolution. there are many more codes and ciphers that are in the book, and at this point, i would like to open it up to some questions. hopefully i will have some answers. we have won back their. wait for the mic please. >> could you comment on nathan hale? >> nathan hale was absolutely a very poor spy. i don't know if you are familiar with what has been found out. british general, the scottish general by the name of grant, his papers were found images become recently available. in there he identifies that robert rogers actually got hail to tell him that he was a spy and what the mission was, and hale should have kept his mouth shut. what h
there is a case in virginia that we know of. there's also a spy who carried messages from london to paris, the benjamin franklin. used false eels. on his boots to carry the message. washington's deception. now the one thing i do have to say about washington. assembly who never told a lie, he certainly stretched the truth an awful lot. [laughter] >> up in cambridge when he first takes over the american army, they were down to actually nine rounds per min. nine shots, that was it. as far as the game under and gunpowder they had in him in him. he knew there were british spies going around the american camp, so what he did is he had a shipment of barrels brought up from providence, rhode island, mark don bauder. the only problem is inside the barrels was and. so the british spies would go back and report that the americans had plenty of gunpowder, and they be able to keep the sea shepherd for a long time. he also did a thing called a troop multiplication at morristown, when after the battles of trenton and princeton, the american army goes up and he can set more than. and while there, normall

[laughter] >> yeah, people ask me sometimes why i don't work on harleys, and why generally say is i work on motorcycles, not lifestyles. i'm not qualified to help them with their lifestyle issues, it is beyond my competence. >> what is soulcraft? >> the title on the book is a play on a george will that cannot 20 years ago. his was st

on the road in the acc as he did this evening. wake forest was able to defeat virginia tech. there's a swing and a miss for two strike outs here for miranda. and also a victory at home against nc state. it marks the 21st and that one resolved. here we are in the tenth tonight. and three extra innings played the one mentioned as well and an 11 inning loss. it's 3-2 on march 17th. and a victory and a loss and one innings to ken state back in february. >> they are signature wins but much more than being a signature win if they aren't able to prove that. it's not that you are beating the hurricanes at home for the hurricanes but you are beating them having played what most people call a poor game. you a gave up so many errors in a ball game and getting in the way. and for coach walters to squeak this out and tell the young team we played as bad as you can imagine. it would be a huge victory for the program. for the hurricanes to say,, you know, we have a team in here that we think we are better than and we have more talent then they have and had sixors. we have to get a lot better. if not, it wi

march is already on from massachusetts to new jersey to virginia, the freedom agenda is winning today with a winning message, shrink government, lower taxes, give people back their freedom, their choices for their families and their future and power the job creators instead of the political class. let's tap into that competitive spirit and quite frankly the competence that's only found in the entrepreneurial sector, not in government. that's what makes america great, more choice, less control from washington, more jobs, fewer bureaucrats, more entrepreneurs, fewer career politicians, but we can't coast and to a new majority. nor can we assume it is a sure thing. possible alternative narrative's to tell. any other headline will do. here is one headline americans know to be the truth. democrats trust government more than they trust the american people. that is a headline that is straining all across this land. it is a headline that families are confronting at their kitchen tables every night. that is the headline small business owners are opening their doors to every day. that is the he
. but my guess is that the senator from virginia, the senator from connecticut might drop that in about five minutes. not that the senator from virginia is actually add -- advocating. he's trying to solve something else. that's something in about five minutes could be solved. so i do think that what senator warner has said is true. that is that the rhetoric around this, an issue that could be dealt with literally in about five minutes, is probably overheated. and the fact is that what we need to do is figure out a way to focus on this issue in an intelligent way. i think that as the senator from virginia mentioned, people on both extremes want to make sure that if a large institution in this company fails, it's just like the small institutions in this country. they go out of business. i think we're united on that. are there some flaws that exist? yes. did the bill get a little sideways at the end? yes. but do people understand the way we can deal with this in an intelligent, thoughtful way and fix that? yes. i wonder if the senator from virginia would wish to not maybe get into specific

of the national book critics circle and spoke recently at the virginia festival of the book in charlottesville. this is a half-hour. >> rebecca skloot, who is henrietta lacks? >> a porth african american tobacco farmer who was raised in southern virginia and eventually moved up to baltimore where she was diagnosed with cervical cancer at 30 and without her knowledge her doctor to a small piece of her tumor and put it in a petrie dish and her cells became the first in mortal human cell line grown in culture scientists have been trying to grow cells for decades and it never worked and no one knows why but hers just never died. so hurt cells or alive growing in laboratories around the world though she died in 1951 and they became one of the most important thing is that happened in medicine and they were used to develop a polio vaccine and first space missions to see what happened to the human cells and human gravity. there were the first cloud, her jeans for the first map. the site at the plant marks go on and on. >> and they are still used today? >> yeah. one of the most widely used lines. >> an
in virginia that we know of and also a spy who carried messages from london to paris to benjamin franklin and used false heels on his boots to carry the message. washington's deceptions. the one thing i do have to say about washington for somebody who never told a lie he stretched the truth an awful lot. [laughter] up at cambridge when he first six over the american army, they were down 29 rounds her man. nine shots were bad as it does for as the gunpowder in camp. he knew there were british spies going around the american camping so he had a shipment of barrels brought up from providence rhode island marked gunpowder the only problem is in said the barrels was say and. the british spies would go back and report that the americans had plenty of gunpowder and they could keep the cs for a long time. he also did a troop multiplication at morristown after the battles of trenton and princeton the camps at morristown and while there normally putting most of the troops in cluster in houses to keep as many together as you could. washington with the opposite way but wonder to soldiers and a house
the bulldogs. he is out of york high school in seaford, virginia. one more bad one to load the bases here. a fastball strike, 3-1. >> jeff: you can see with the georgia coaches like with patrick boling. good velocity, nice, easy motion. they really like his upside. and head coach for georgia, david, perno, enjoying looking at him. >> matt: and bases loaded. >> jeff: that is not the worst thing in the world to load them up and set them up for a double play for the bulldogs. >>> we talked about it last year. a great job in the 9. >> jeff: hit the ball hard. not cheap hits. it will be interesting to see how long clemson goes with leone. already surpassed his career outing against carolina last time out. that gives clemson a big leg up for tonight's game over in tigertown where they will have a fresh bullpen. and nester pops this one town left field. and taylor makes the grab. they tag. here comes the throw from taylor. not in time. ball gets away from glisson. another error on georgia. 10-2 now, and a sacrificed fly. >> jeff: that is probably a ball that should have been set off by the
of virginia where there's a center named for albert. and i thank you, albert. >> with, you know, that brief statement, i would like to open up the table, you know, for questions. do we have any of our members? if you ask a question, i think we need to wait either, b, at a mic or wait for one of the traveling mics. and can you introduce yourself and mention your organization. do we have an opening question? >> i'm with the hudson institute. i'm very interested in your civility campaign. i'm a fan of promoting civility. one thing i often note is that it contributes to a lack of civility in a sense when your team makes the argument it's fine. but when the other team doesn't, let's say the filibuster. when the republicans are in the majority they think the filibuster is terrible and the democrats are the majority. they switch sides depending on where they stand. and so i think that contributes to the lack of civility. i'm interested on your thoughts where the break down of civility came from and what we can do to fix it? >> well, first, i mean, american has always had issues. walt woodman said

to point out that i would say 98% of west virginia virginians, pennsylvanians, of ohioans wyomingites, have never been down a mine. so it's -- what people have to understand, this isn't sort of a public place we're talking about. this is 35 minutes, 45 minutes up a beautiful hollow, with lovely streams and things, and then all of a sudden you come to this enormous mine. it's a private, private life. decisions are made by very few. and the effects are very many. the miners are put in an impossible cultural position. because if they get offered payment of $65,000 to $70,000, what are they going to do? are they going to say no, not interested? that's not the way it works. but when they -- and they have family, so they have obligations to that family. they have to survive and they have to take care of their families as well as keep the lights on in america, so it isn't really a choice for them, this culture. to me, the culture has to start from the top and i'm going to give you an example, and i'll be short, mr. chairman, as i always am. i was governor for eight years in west virginia and we we
the other thing that is incredible is her own lawyers, the virginia lawyers, backed out of this case and quit, because she wouldn't settle for the full amount they asked for in the complaint and they thought they had the case settled, in 1997, i believe it was, and, in this remarkable letter i got my hands on the lawyers begged her to settle the case, at most it was worth $50,000 if she got anything at all and there's a lot about the paula jones case. >> another "what if" though... >> right. >> and there was an opportunity to settle the case before the lawsuit was brought. >> that is true, and, for that part i think president clinton deserves -- that was the best decision on his part but i have to tell you that president clinton's lawyers and paula jones's lawyers made clear to me, they believed they had the case settled. this was not something president clip didn't agree to. he did agree to it. they thought was settled and at the last minute, paula jones, her advisor, susan clark, and her husband, steve jones wanted more than what they asked for, they wanted an apology, more money o
to virginia. michael, good morning. a republican. >> caller: yes, how are you this morning? >> host: doing fine. go ahead with your comment. >> caller: hey, i'm very grateful for all this young man is saying. let me say this, i worked on the maybe campaign and i was over seven counties in west virginia, okay? and i understand where you're coming from about, you know, mccain not being a conservative and the ground game and everything. but we also need to place some blame on young people or whoever was working in the field that didn't take their own initiative. i had -- i started an internship and had 27 interns from james madison university. no one told me to do that. i did that on my own accord. and so, therefore, you have to -- the ground game has to be creative. and do their own thing. and know how to bring people in. so you can't totally blame it on maybe. i think a lot of it has to do with the people on the ground that you got working for you and how professional they are. >> guest: well, a lot has to be pinned on mccain. i mean, his ground game has the -- should have the resources. ob
we've seen five young men from virginia turn up in pakistan on their way to the father. we continue to see a trickle of individuals of somali ancestry heading for east africa. so while i think that we are doing well, you know, the nature of the threat is always changing. .. i wondered, you tended to use the word violent extremism, words like islamist never came out of your mouth during your speech. and some people think that the obama administration has turned its back and not taken the war on terrorism, if may use that term, as seriously as the result of the fact that you don't talk about role of islam. reminds me of when rob litak led the way with term rogue state. rogue reg geem. and i helped to do that, too and mind one albright said let's not use that term anymore. is the trace of language a way of communicating to the muslim world, quote on quote, that islam is not the issue even though there are extremists who are muslim? is that the purpose? >> i get this question with every appearance. i think that the best way to put it is that the issues of what constitutes true islam and

reviews have fine minds. virginia woolf who wrote who i think every week during a certain period of her life wrote book reviews and signed. i don't like to do anything unsigned particularly that is not especially well played except when the pay is good. how does and as a differ from a lesser notice of a book? it is very simple it seems to me. it differs in the way art differs from what is not. that is to say it should be shapely. it should be deep as well as personal. the personal is often attached. this is perhaps the noblest function of book reviewing and i think it is what we should aim for even if we only have 500 words which i have had in my lifetime and i am sure you have. if we achieve it our work will be no more in need of defending than a poem or a novel. if you think your situation is tough, considered dance reviewing which is the other thing that i do. thank you very much.
